Audrey - Audrey Griffith, beloved wife of the late Keith Griffith, passed away at the Yorkton Regional Health Centre on January 9, 2020, at the age of 86 years. Audrey Isabelle Doreen was born November 3, 1933. She was the daughter of George and Marie (Renauld) Rose, born on the farm between Carlyle and Manor, SK. The family came north in 1934 - their first home was in the River Hills north of Norquay, SK. Then they moved to land owned by John Perpeluk. In the spring of 1937, they moved to Parr View, where they started farming. All the children attended Moss Side School. Audrey married Keith Griffith on August 7, 1952 in Moose Jaw, SK. In April 1953, they moved back to Parr View to begin farming. They started with dairy farming and later sold it and transitioned into beef cattle operations. Audrey was actively involved with the farm; she would haul bales, combine, and butcher countless chickens. She was also a member of the Parr View Homemakers, the committee for Community College, and on the committee for the Swan Plain History Book. In 2006, Audrey and Keith retired and moved to Yorkton, SK. Over the years, they enjoyed fishing, camping, and travelling together. Audrey loved to quilt and was very proud to have made a quilt for each of her 13 grandchildren. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her. Audrey was predeceased by her parents, George and Marie; her husband, Keith; son, Larry; siblings: LaVerne, Marquerite, Marvin, Ruth, Shirley, Willa, and Howard; daughter-in-law, Karen Griffith; nephew, Elwin; and several sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law.
